Hello!

I like "The Perry Como Show" too!

In terms of boxing, I don't know if this interests you, but the oldest surviving recordings of boxing matches seem to come from 1950. There's actually a surprising amount of surviving kinescopes of 1950s boxing matches. A few of them appeared on another website a while ago, so it is possible that they may one day appear on here.

On a related note: I heard of some footage of an old boxing match for which one side of the print has decomposed (nitrate), meaning the one of the boxers was gone, and the other boxer was punching into gooey nothingness (jelly?).
